The Changing Face of Collaboration in the Enterprise

Mark Grilli, Director of Acrobat Solutions, offers his thoughts on the new direction of collaboration.  Be sure to click over to his extended blog post!

There’s been a dramatic shift in how we exchange information and collaborate in the workplace. We’re officially in the “social media era,” where working with each other means IM, blogs, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. As these technologies transition into the traditional enterprise, even the most customary and mundane tasks are expected to live up to the new standard they set. Let’s face it: the way we work today is different from how we worked just five years ago, and we must conform.

For this post, I’m going to use the digital document as my example because of the critical role it plays in everyday business processes. Once you turn a dull process like document creation and review, into a more intuitive social practice, you can make the leap from a “traditional enterprise” to a “collaborative enterprise.” In a study of enterprise collaboration techniques, the Gilbane Group said, “The document is becoming a parallel collaboration channel to the Web, a channel in which people not only create and consume ideas, but also interact around them, creating innovation and value.” By including links, buttons, and rich content, such as drawings, images, videos, and embedded web pages, document consumers and creators have endless options to improve productivity, quality of work and their overall experience.

Adobe Acrobat X Survey

At Adobe, we value our user’s opinions and take into account your suggestions for upcoming product and services updates. In fact, the brand new FormsCentral features (Page skip logic, Summary reports and Form templates) came directly from our user community!

2011 has been an exciting year for us. We kicked off our year with our first Twitteview (#Acroview) with senior product managers Chris French and Dave Stromfeld. Then in March we launched our Facebook page and shortly after the Acrobat Solutions Group on LinkedIn.  Most recently we’ve introduced the Acrobat YouTube channel to share the latest cool tricks, tutorials and insider perspectives from our developers and managers.

We’ve certainly grown our social reach in the past couple months and want to hear from you, our customers, to find out how we are doing. Similar to our products and services, we welcome your feedback and invite you to participate in the following FormsCentral survey below. We are looking forward to hearing what you think and thank you for your time in taking this quick survey.

Happy Birthday Acrobat and PDF!

Top 10 Ways to Celebrate the birth of a technology that helped change the world

On June 15, Adobe Acrobat and PDF celebrate their 18th birthdays. Turning 18 is pretty significant. There are lots of things you can do at 18 that you couldn’t before. Like all the great new features and capabilities Acrobat has acquired over the years. But that’s for another blog.

Today, we want to celebrate. It would be nice to take Acrobat and PDF out for an evening on the town, for instance, but that’s not likely, of course. Instead, we’ve come up with a few ways you can celebrate this important milestone on your own, or with colleagues and friends, perhaps. All in good fun, naturally.

1. Play PDF Scavenger Hunt – Pick a document, the bigger and more interesting the better. Convert it to a PDF if it’s not already. Then create a list of words and race to find them first using the search tool.

2. Host a Shared Wisdom Meeting – If you’re more inclined to celebrate quietly, we suggest a Shared Wisdom Meeting. This one is great for an interactive lunch setting. Here you and your friends share your best Acrobat tips and tricks gleaned over the past 18 years. Use audio and video, collect your wisdom in a PDF Portfolio and share with colleagues.

3. Rent an Inflatable Jumper – This may be a stretch, but if you’ve never bounced around in one of these inflatable “rooms” it’s worth it to try your best Acrobat-ics.

4. Movie Night – Did you know you can incorporate video, 3D, maps, full-color graphics, photos, and more into PDF files? Yes, that means you can enjoy a movie or your favorite YouTube videos in the comfort of your own PDF!

5. Hawaiian luau – Maybe there’s no official Acrobat or PDF connection, but why not design your invites in PDF?

6. Host a Costume Party – Be anyone you want to be! PDF files are viewable and printable on virtually any platform. Create PDF “masks” with redaction capabilities. Give your PDF Portfolios “costumes” by adding your own logos and image with customization capabilities.

7. Take a Weekend Road Trip – Take lots of photos and keep a journal, then create a PDF Portfolio of your road trip memories.

8. Office Challenge – If you’re the competitive sort, try the shared document reviews marathon (track participation, comments…); or an interactive PDF Forms Relay for tracking and managing responses.

9. Toga Party – These are always fun. Bring a bottle or two of Acrobat wine along to impress your friends. If you need tips watch National Lampoon’s “Animal House.”

10. PDF-a-Palooza – Host a digital marketing party by grabbing your cool artwork and ads and editing your favorite customer photos in Adobe Photoshop. Present your best work to senior management in PDF!

There you go: 10 ways to celebrate Acrobat and PDF with Acrobat and PDF. What will you do to celebrate? We’d love to hear from you! Share your favorite PDF feature or celebration idea with us on our Facebook wall.
